Ah - ok. That isn't possible at the moment. The attachment
policy decisions are based on file names, not MIME types. I'm
interested in adding MIME-type based policies, but havn't done so

W.r.t. the rest of your message: congradulations, you found a bug!
Two in fact, one to do with trailing white space on file names,
the other to do with filename rewriting when both the "name" and
"filename" attributes are present in the MIME headers. I've fixed
them both and will be releasing 1.22 about the same
time as I send you this message (next time I find a 'net café).

Thanks for the bug report.

And btw:

file_name_tpl = /var/quarantine/att-$F.$$$
file_list_rules = 0
file_default_policy = drop
